Astaroth vs Asmodeus

By | October 16, 2009

I was going to name my demon rape fantasy “Asteroth, the Corruptor”. But it looks like I mixed up my demons. Asmodeus is the demon of lust. Astaroth is a demon of mathematics and inquisitions. Although it’s beyond me why anyone would call on a demon to learn mathematics, I can think of at least one calculus teacher whose course was hell.

Funny, but “Asmodeus the Corruptor” just doesn’t sound as menacing. Asmodeus reminds me of the movie Amadeus and the actor’s annoyingly loud laugh. I’ll either have to think of another name or ignore traditional mythology. Although….considering how movies and comic books constantly reinvent mythological characters, I wonder if any one would care.
